Gutenberg. Since the beginning of the year I’ve been leading, together with Joen Asmussen, the effort to build a new editor for WordPress. There’s an early version you can install from the plugin repository. Even though we still have a lot of work to do, I’m proud of the team and what has been accomplished so far.
I also took the opportunity to launch matias.blog as a long-overdue place to publish in Spanish.
Planning the editing composition for Cenizas Blancas
The practice of capturing and laying out still images from a sequence of shots—using cards on a wall, printing them out on a board, etc—has been a common technique for film editing. Usually storyboards have their place before filming a scene, as the blueprints of the narrative, but they are also valuable tools to recreate in the later stages of the process from the real material. The quick overview the storyboard provides is a good way to represent the structure of a film sequence as a whole in a single plane, this time not to plan the filming of the scene but to compose it. The visual organization is a helpful aid to figure out the patterns and the visual evolution by isolating the variable of time and dealing only with the ordering of the fragments.
